I have curly hairs. Shocking, I know. But tis true, I have naturally curly hair.
Growing up I found this to be a curse, I hated it! I had no idea how to manage it and all through high school I damaged the heck out of it just to make it stick straight every day! Throughout college I would wear it natural if I was running late or hungover! (just being honest)
About a year ago I decided that I needed to stop damaging my hair so much and let it go natural every once in awhile, well that backfired quick! Basically the 8+ years of a straight iron had made my hair no longer naturally curly, but naturally frizzy and weird wavy. WHOMP!
After many hours on the inter-webs and talking to my amazing BFF hair stylist, I discovered a few tricks and products to bring out my awesome curls!
After months of trial and error, I am finally bringing my results to y'all!
First off, my least favorite:
I LOVE all of my moroccan oil products so I was so excited about this one but it made my hair feel heavy. It is a thicker cream and my curls were non-exsistant with it, more wavy. Every time I used this I had waves instead of curl!
Next is Miss Jessie's Quick Curls
Out of all the Miss Jessie's curl products, I heard and read that this one created the soft, frizz free curls. Which is exactly what I wanted, and got. However with the frizz free I got the "wet look." I loved the curls and they stayed all day but I would rather have some frizz and not wet looking hair!
Excuse my face, I was not trying to seduce you.
My runner up is L'Oreal Professionnel Curl Satin Mousse
Love, Love, Love! My hair was very lightweight and held curl all day long with this stuff! I think the trick for my hair is a mousse, any gel or cream just weighs it down too much! This mousse not only smells wonderful but did exactly what I wanted it to do, hold my curls and not look awful by hour 12 at work!
As much as I loved the L'Oreal mousse I also love a good cheap drug store brand. I grabbed this one random drug store trip at the beach so I didn't have to flat iron my hair and it is hands down, my go to curl tamer!
HEAVEN. The lightest mousse I have ever used, holds my curl like no other, hardly any frizz and you really can't ever use too much! I have doused my head in this stuff and always come out with fabulous looking curls! Works just as wonderfully as the L'Oreal but for 1/4 of the cost!
Not to mention this is the only stuff I have ever used that still tames my hair the NEXT DAY! Most products glue my hair to my head and make it look a hot mess the next day!
So my conclusion is I have to have a mousse and I should probably stick to the drug store brands! Crazy!
Any of y'all curly haired ladies have a product I MUST try??
